It's three in the morning, and Bernard and Nymphadora are awake.

...No, not because of that.

"--Where's the rest of the sparkly tinsel paper?" 'Dora asks distractedly, shuffling through the mess of wrapping accoutrements around her on the floor of their bedroom.

"Uhhhhhh." Bernard lifts a distressingly large pile of sticky bows; why did she buy so many?! "Did you use it all on the kitchen stuff?"

"Um." He lifts a roll. "Dancing candy canes." Lifts another. "Fighting gingerbread men. You have scary taste." Said with love.

He bops her on the head with it before handing it to her.

"How should I wrap... these?" He holds up a pile of squashy, colorful alphabet blocks.

"...Yeah. Which is why I'm asking."

He sets them on a spare piece of paper and sort of like. Arranges them in a pile.

"Maybe just." He pulls the corners of the paper up and holds it like a pouch.

"Groovy." By the time he's finished with it, it looks kind of like a big wrapped up candy, tied with a bow.

He turns to the logically-packaged dresses they got Sunny. "Do you think she'll ever want some damn pants?"

Bernard rolls his eyes and wraps one of the boxes in the candy cane paper. "Anthony and I went out on a walk today."

"Monkeyfaced freeloader rode on my chest the whole time," Bernard snickers, then sobers with an effort.

"We, ah. Strayed into the woods."

"Didn't mean to." His fingers fold the end of the wrapping paper over, and he tapes it. "I wasn't watching where I was going. It fades into the Dreaming, in spots." A breath, and before she can even ask, "Dream took the opportunity to talk to me. Not the nice one."

He looks up, and reaches over, covering her hand with one of his.

"It's okay. Nothing really happened. I think that there must be Morpheus in there somewhere, because Anthony dropped off to sleep and stayed asleep the whole time." A small, confused smile. "It was weird. He wanted to ask about love. Moiraine left Morpheus."

He takes his hand back, shrugging. "Said it's kind of a mystery and that's how it should be. That you know you've got something good when it fits right off the bat. That part of what fuels a good relationship is working on the parts that don't quite fit." He shakes his head and takes another box.

"I don't think I helped that much until he asked about how to deal with pain."

"He was in so much pain. I was never not scared of him, but I guess it's possible to fear something or someone and still sympathize."

"Anyway." He clears his throat, and reaches for the paper. "It wasn't good, but it wasn't bad either. He was more manageable. Able to listen."

"You're not kidding. I thought I was fucked."
